Roland BT1 Drum Trigger
The Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger is a small curved pad that can be placed anywhere around a kit or sit nicely on the edge on a drum, it is a discrete solution for anyone who wants to trigger electronic sounds as part of their setup. Connect the trigger to any module or brain such as any of the Roland TD modules of the SPD series and you have huge creative options to your playing.
Here's what Roland say about BT-1 Bar Trigger
Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad
Versatile add-on trigger pad for acoustic drum kits and V-Drums kits
If you own an acoustic kit, the Roland BT-1 bar trigger pad offers an easy and affordable way to use electronics without jumping headfirst into the world of electronic drum kits. Once installed and connected to a sound source (such as the SPD-SX sampling pad), the BT-1 will enable you to play with new drum sounds or entire backing tracks, all from behind your trusty acoustic drum kit. The BT-1 can also be used to add more triggers to an existing V-Drums kit, saving space on the drum rack.
With a curved shape that mounts on the side of an acoustic drum or V-Drums pad, the BT-1 provides a convenient playing surface without the need to reconfigure your existing drum kit layout. The BT-1 is great for playing sounds in a Roland V-Drums module or SPD-series percussion pad, but it can also act as a controller for a variety of functions such as start/stop of backing songs, phrase loops, and much more.
The superior sensors within the BT-1 are tuned to eliminate crosstalk when playing surrounding drums - so you'll only hear it when you hit it.
- Compact and reliable single-trigger pad
- A great way to add electronic triggering to any acoustic kit or additional triggering to a V-Drums set
- Curved shape for easy mounting on a V-Pad or acoustic drum kit
- Can be mounted to acoustic drums from 8 inch to 18 inch
- Easy to attach via a drum tension rod; attachment parts for standard rod-type mounts included
- Internal design eliminates vibration which causes false triggering while playing surrounding drums and pads
Adding electronics to acoustic drums
The BT-1 is an easy and affordable way to integrate electronics with your acoustic kit. Unlike large round pads and inconvenient foot switches the BT-1 blends seamlessly with your kit while increasing its capabilities. It can be mounted to your acoustic drums (from 8 inch to 18 inch diameter) or to any rod-type mount (from 8mm to 12.5mm).
Additional triggering for V-Drums kits
If you own a Roland V-Drums kit or SPD-series instrument, the compact BT-1 makes it simple to incorporate additional triggers without having to add more pads to your kit.
Add triggers without reconfiguring your set-up
Because the BT-1 can be mounted to your existing acoustic drums and V-Pads, you can easily add additional triggers without needing to move drums and cymbals to accommodate them. The compact design of the BT-1 provides a solid playing surface to continuously expand the expressive power of your Roland percussion rig.
